It is important for us to remember those who were part of our group but are no longer with us. May they be in a lovely place filled with good books to read. We remember them with love.

Jacklyn MelchiorIt is with great sorrow that we learned of the passing of Jacky Melchior, a member of the East Bay Mystery Readers' Group since 1997. A biochemist by profession, Jacky loved mysteries and had three of her own published in Ellery Queen Magazine. Even after she was physically unable to join us for the meetings, Jacky would email LJ with her comments on books, and thank LJ for keeping her on the email list. LJ showed her, her Kindle and Jacky ordered her own. She was admired, loved and we miss her.

Jane PrentissJane Prentiss was one of our "remote" members who became a member through her friendship with LJ. A marketing professional, far more important than her career were her roles as wife to Bob and mother to Megan. It was wonderful that she was healthy and vibrant for Megan's wedding. Jane had a marvelous sense of humor and, in addition to reading, loved to garden and animals which led to volunteering as a dog-walker at the Oakland ASPCA.

We hope this will be the page on our site which receives the fewest updates.
